What Are Examples Of Product Liability Cases?

If you have used a product as it was intended (or in a manner reasonably foreseeable by the designers of the product) and you were injured, you may have a product liability claim. Under Texas law, product liability cases generally fall under three broad categories:

  • Product design defects: A product that is dangerous due to a defective design means that the product has a fundamental flaw or defect. Examples of a design defect are drop-side cribs.
  • Product manufacturing defects: Defective manufacturing can occur because of a choice by the manufacturer to deviate from design protocols by using cheaper materials or sometimes by an error on the manufacturing line.
  • Inadequate warnings on or accompanying the product: Products with inadequate warnings are also referred to as having defective marketing. When a product has been designed and manufactured to be as safe as possible, but still poses some risks to the consumer, the consumer must be given adequate warning. An example of inadequate warnings is a medication that doesn't contain instructions about potential side-effects.

You can recover compensation in a product liability claim with the help of a lawyer if you have been injured due to any of these issues.

What Can You Do If You Are Injured By A Product You Purchased?

A successful plaintiff in a product liability case can recover actual damages, such as medical bills and lost wages, as well as compensatory damages for pain and suffering. In some cases, exemplary damages (commonly known as punitive damages) can be recovered if the manufacturer's conduct is so bad that it should be punished.

These cases are complicated, however, and you will need to consult an attorney to proceed with a claim. Attorney Mark VanCleave can help you prove the manufacturers were at fault for your injury. This can be difficult to figure out, but The Law Offices of Mark D. VanCleave, PLLC, understands this process. We can help you get the compensation you are entitled to.
